Indeed since past summer (2005) it was possible to logon into the librie thanks to a hack introduced during the Firmware Traslation. During some months the only available example had been a slide display project, allowing one to use the Librie as a secondary display of your main machine. Then I did a port of the netpbm graphical tools plus some extraction tools for djvu documents, but I got stuck about controlling the keyboard. Finally a month ago Jennings reverse engineered the keyboard mechanism and offered a set of C functions to use it plus a pair of utilities to query the keys from bash scripts (the latter due to compatibility with my approach). Now Jennings realeased its browsing demo plus a microSDK, and another guy has uploaded explanations about how to use PPP over the old login scheme, so you can in theory to have full navegation from a Librie-deployed browser (say, links).
